Biography of A. Borg
Saunders County, NE Biographies





A. Borg, who is conducting a harness shop in Malmo, was born in Sweden, January 6, 1845, a son of Nels and Carrie (Hendrickson) Borg, who passed their entire lives in that country. The father was in the Swedish army for thirty four years. His family comprised five sons and five daughters, all of whom were born in Sweden.

A. Borg received his education in his native land and there learned the harnessmaker's trade, which he followed in that country together with shoemaking until 1885, when he emigrated to the United States. He first located at Mead, Nebraska, where for three months he was employed as a section hand, but at the end of that time he started a harness shop in Mead, which he conducted successfully until 1895. He then removed to Colon and after remaining there for a year came to Malmo, where he established a shop. He carries an excellent stock of harness and does all kinds of repair work, including cobbling.

In 1874 Mr. Borg was united in marriage to Miss Amalia Barry and they became the parents of a son, Alfred, who is station agent at Herman, Nebraska. Mrs. Borg passed away in 1892.

Mr. Borg is a republican but has not taken a very active part in politics. His religious faith is that of the Lutheran church and its teachings form the guiding principle of his life. He has gained a fair measure of success and holds the confidence and respect of those who come in contact with him.
